A banjo feature at Stratoblogster!?

HOLD ON! This should amaze any guitarist, musician or any human being for that matter.

Only moments ago I watched a remarkable feature on ABC's Good Morning America about Bluegrass legend Eddie Adcock. Due to a tremor condition with his hands, Adcock had lost the ability to play his instrument. However, a neurosurgeon figured out how to remedy that, which involved Eddie actually playing his banjo during a brain surgery procedure in which the doctor fine tuned a pacemaker powered brain implant probe which nullified the tremors, thus re-enabling Adcock to play banjo, write, etc.
